The Bill Gates-AGLOCO lie

Brazil
March 2, 2007 8:29pm CST
Have you ever read these lies trying to shove AGLOCO down your thorat on Mylot? "Bill Gates comments on Agloco as the next big thing!!" "Bill Gates endorses AGLOCO!" "John Chow said Bill Gates liked AGLOCO!" Grow up. Bill Gates NEVER said anything about AGLOCO. Heck, I doubt he even knows it exists- straight from Brian Greenwald (from the AGLOCO Development Team), from AGLOCO´s own blog- ""As I browse the web, I come across a lot of articles, blogs, forums, and webpages about AGLOCO. It’s great to see our community branching out actively, discussing AGLOCO, and spreading the word."" ""Sometimes, however, I see inaccuracies about AGLOCO."" ""Some of the headlines are pretty wild, from “AGLOCO is being funded by Bill Gates” to “AGLOCO Will Not Make Money Online! Ever!” With 1.5 million pages showing up from a Google search of AGLOCO there are plenty of different ‘stories’ to find. Just to see how far things have gone, I searched AGLOCO and “Alexander the Great” and found 83 Google results which had both of these on the same page. I hadn’t realized these topics are related."" ""While I wish I had the time to scour the web and comment on all of these, it would be an overwhelming and never-ending task (with over 100,000 new pages every week). Still, I wanted to take a minute to talk about some of these rumors and clarify them."" ""We are delighted that both of these men have come out in favor of revenue sharing with Internet users. I mentioned the following in a comment to my last post: I’d like to quickly clarify some misinformation I’ve been seeing around the web lately regarding Chad Hurley and Bill Gates. In an earlier post, we referred to public statements they have made in support of revenue sharing, indicating that the AGLOCO concept (basically all about revenue sharing) is on the right track. Some folks seem to be erroneously claiming that Hurley and Gates have made public statements directly about AGLOCO (rather than the revenue sharing concept AGLOCO promotes), which is FALSE!"" Laughable... I wonder how many foolish users believed the hype and joined AGLOCO, wasted hours promoting it and giving it free banner space, because of the AGLOCO sheep lying to get you to sign under them?

I have not joined agloco yet for some reason i keep putting it off..Is that just instinct or procrastination? What do you advise on the matter? Is it worth joining? or is it just another bubble scam? Your valued opinion would be greatly appreciated.

I´d say join up (no, I dont give referral links, just go to Aglco´s site), but dont waste banner space on your site promoting them or anything...

I have avoided Agloco. It seems many scam sites use Bill Gates' name to lure folks into joining. And yes, I'm sure Mr. Gates has never heard of Agloco.

I have been wondering if i should sign up or not... this company is offering equity to the user for christ sake, that is precisely the reason why i have not signed up yet. If anything looks too good to be true it most probably is not.. what do u say about it? do you think it's worth it?
